the debut ep
Monday 31st October 2011
New Music Video for “Champion” Released Today
The Tracklisting: 1 ‘Champion’. 2 ‘When The Party’s Over’. 3 ‘Blue Eyes’. 4 ‘Menwith Hill’. 5 ‘Songs For The Sun’. 6 *Bonus Track* ‘Champion’ (Miadis Remix).
The Truth: THE CHEVIN are four young men from Otley, West Yorkshire. They consist of Coyle Girelli (vocals), Mat Steel (guitar), Jon Langford (bass) and Mal Taylor (drums). THE CHEVIN is pronounced ‘The Shev-In’. Fans of the West Yorkshire tourist board are already sure to know that The Chevin is also name of the hill that surrounds the band’s hometown.
And home is very much where the heart is for THE CHEVIN: Coyle, Steel and Langford started playing music together while at school in Otley and band’s line-up was ultimately completed when they later enlisted the services of Taylor, another old school friend.
Now they are called THE CHEVIN. And they are about to shake the alt-rock world to its floundering foundations.
The ‘Champion’ EP is THE CHEVIN’s first ever release. It features a song called ‘Champion’ which is insanely epic, manically widescreen, heroically uplifting and destined to soundtrack Goal Of The Month montages, X Factor breakdowns and all manner of valedictory celebrations for years to come. You can feel the trip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HHeWPliFOA right now. And this, my friends, is just the start. Come share THE CHEVIN love at their first UK tour here, here and there…
